Elfin Lace Shawl

So very delicate, beautiful, and regular a pattern that even someone new to lace knitting would be tempted to make it; and indeed the Elfin Lace pattern is only 8 rows high, so it’s not overly intimidating. This is one of those happy pieces where the chosen pattern, modest in scale though it might be, is so lovely that its impact equals that of much more elaborate works. You begin at the bottom point of the triangle and work up; the heart lace border is added on the two short triangle sides afterwards. Lace is both charted and written out. Gauge is given after severe blocking.
